Today I saw the clip of the man at the McCain rally who is very angry because, as he says, "the socialists are taking over."
Phew, am I glad to hear that! It's about time!
We know where we have gotten in the last 8 years. Free market - tanked. Remember the old plan to "privatize social security" by having people invest their own money? Hmmm, isn't it a good thing today that this did not happen? Did you benefit greatly from the "trickle down" method of economics?
So what does a country look like when we are all in it together? Ideally, it is a country where no child or person is hungry or uneducated. It is a place where people with disabilities have the care they need. It is a place where grandma can live in an assisted living facility instead of a nursing home. It is a place where education is fully funded and we create the best scholars in the world. It is a place where everyone who is able is working. It is a place where those in the upper 1% of the income bracket don't have all the power. A place where everyone has healthcare. And yes, it is a place where people from other countries are treated with respect and dignity rather than being vilified as "aliens."
Socialism is taking over? Bring it on!
